Today marks 1 year since my Mother's passing.
I still catch myself thinking she is still here physically and that I can just call her and tell her what's going on in my life.
I would call her and say "Hello Mother" and she would reply "Hello daughter". I still her hear her voice in my head.
She called me her "darling daughter" from time to time. So yesterday when I came across a story of a Mother and daughter's conversation about getting older I felt it was a message she was sending to me.
The last passage caught my attention:
"I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you... my darling daughter."
Thank you Mom for reminding me of how you loved me. I love you and miss you so much.
